Although poverty is the main cause of children malnutrition, inadequate food supply and inappropriate use of the available food compounded with limited access to clean water and poor infant caring practices also contributes to child malnutrition. This document proposes a model for piloting complementary food preparation and distribution, since children care takers must have adequate knowledge on the type and preparation of food to feed infants at the age of six months in addition to breast milk. The main objective of this project is to establish and administer a child grain bank to store complementary food production and organize its distribution to mothers and child care takers.
